The Role of the Acquisitions Librarian in Electronic Resources Management
Pomerantz, Sarah B.
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v22 n1-2 p40-48 2010
With the ongoing shift to electronic formats for library resources, acquisitions librarians, like the rest of the profession, must adapt to the rapidly changing landscape of electronic resources by keeping up with trends and mastering new skills related to digital publishing, technology, and licensing. The author sought to know what roles librarians with primary responsibility for acquisitions have related to electronic resources and what models of staffing and workflow are used. The author developed a survey to answer questions related to the role of acquisitions librarians in electronic resources acquisitions and management. The survey addresses staffing for electronic resources management, the responsibilities of acquisitions librarians, and how their jobs have changed. (Contains 2 figures.)
